Plan B blowed up

The early years?

So there I was……….

Hangin’ out free in the RV park waiting on a new gate.  ‘Bout 2000 on Sunday night and I was at the laundromat washing clothes when I got the call.  Gate down south of Encinal (way south!) and they wanted me there at 0800-0900 in the AM.  Fairly typical notification without alot of info.  I asked they routine questions – What kind of gate is it?  and What does it pay?

Hey Harvey! -- 12 Noon Friday

Harvey on the Horizon

Anybody else tiring of the shots of Weather Channel flunkies standing in water??  I damn sure am.

Me and Vela Von – Hound of the Puckerbrush- just finished a Double Dog Romp because Harvey.

While we were romping, the pumpers came through and shut every well in and shut down all the generators.  The ranch manager made a purposeful stop to let me know if it got “too bad” he had a spot over at the main ranch for me and a dog to hole up.  I am 100 miles north and west of Corpus and the forecast
